and the media makes a lot out of curses of the second term but it's a great opportunity. obama care may have been the first-term success but he has to make it the law of the land and institutionalize it. the presidents hit by the curse. i mean, ronald reagan with the iran-contra scandal. bill clinton had monica lewinski. george bush, katrina. they seem to get unsettled and unraveled by a big event, often beyond their control. barack obama, we don't know what it may be. may be nothing but what he does have, he has at least a green chute to a better economy. he didn't have that four years ago. inherited one of the worst financial messes you could imagine. is that a significant help to him? >> think of second term dwight eisenhower. dealt with the little rock kri sis. nasa. a treaty with 12 countries to demilitarize antarctica. all second term. bill clinton, what he have been without a second term? not a big budget surplus and ronald reagan, i think iran-contra is overblown and historic gorbachev diplomacy and margaret thatcher said reagan ended the cold war without a single shot and the spth f
